Faculty Development Grants for Assessment of Student Learning

Supporting Excellence in Learning and Innovative Pedagogy

The Teaching and Learning Center Faculty Development Grant Program has provided $320,390 to many faculty and staff, who have encouraged and facilitated the development and creation of findings relevant to the assessment of student learning, the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, or research relevant to institutional research, assessment and accreditation.  What has remained constant is the annual programming designed to enhance student learning, promote the scholarship of teaching and learning, and facilitate institution-wide understanding of effective teaching.  Grant recipients commit to publicly share their research to on-campus presentations designed to familiarize the campus with the grant recipients and their projects.  View grant programming history.
